SWIFT Message Pack for BizTalk Server

I am starting a conversation here for us to stay engaged around SWIFT Message Pack for BizTalk Server.

 

Firstly, the updates for 2020 are available to download at:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=102265

 

In view of the Pandemic, SWIFT reduced the scope of changes applicable this year (from what was initially proposed).

https://www.swift.com/standards/standards-releases/release-highlights#:~:text=In%20recognition%20of%....

 

Accordingly, we have released a patch that can be installed on top of SWIFT Message Pack 2019 for BizTalk Server.  This is a change from previous years, where the message pack has been a full installation (and not an update/patch).

 

We have also made the code for message pack publicly available on GitHub.

https://github.com/microsoft/Integration/tree/master/BizTalk%20Server/Swift

 

With respect to the annual updates to SWIFT Message Pack, we believe there are 3 categories of the effort:

1) Understanding the changes proposed by SWIFT and incorporating that into schemas and rules

2) Testing the changes

3) Building and distribution of the message pack

 

With all the application knowledge and financial expertise concentrated outside of Microsoft, we request BizTalk community to own and drive the changes to schemas and rules going forward and help each other by reviewing and testing the changes. We will closely work with

all of you throughout and help in driving the builds and distribution of the message pack.

 

We fully understand that this is a CHANGE. Our intension here is to create and help drive a process in the community that can be eternal and is sustained as long as there is a need.

 

Let us embrace this change and we assure you that we will work together to iron out any wrinkles that we encounter. I am starting this discussion so we have ample time to understand each other and converge on something that works and is seamless and without disruption to the updates in 2021 by the time they are due.

Hi 

As a user of BizTalk 2013 R2 with SWIFT 2019 Messagepack.

What are the things to be taken care for SWIFT 2021 release?

Please guide me where can I get more details with respect to 2021.

For the github I see the prereq as BizTalk 2016.

That means BT 2013 R2 is not supported for any Message pack updates?

 

Thanks

You need to understand that BTS 2013 R2 is already out of Mainstream Support (07/10/2018) so I would expect support for that version.

Maybe based on the code available on GitHub you may put it working.

Hi, my application validates inbound mt103 fin messages through swift message pack on swift accelerator biztalk 2016. I have installed message pack 2019 and 2020 message pack but noticed that new swift rules not updated or implemented on latest message pack. For e.g 50f, line starting with number 3 is mandatory but this is not updated on message pack 2019 and 2020. Please help me on this validation

Will there be any beta package from released by Microsoft or any code updates to github going forward?
